Hi !

Thank you for your query.

I think you are doing the exercises heavily and your body is not accustomed to it . You dont need to take any medicines the pain will go on its own still if you feel you can take a paracetamol for pain relief .

Consult a fitness trainer to guide you.

Hope you are satisfied with the answer.

If you have any further queries feel free to ask.

Wish you good health.

Take care.
